Would you rather please God or man?
6.30.15 Would you rather please God or the world?
I don't know about you but I would much rather please God.
1 Thessalonians 2:3 For our appeal does not spring from error or impurity or any attempt to deceive, 4 but just as we have been approved by God to be entrusted with the gospel, so we speak, not to please man, but to please God who tests our hearts.
Colossians 3:23 Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men,
Acts 5:29 But Peter and the apostles answered, “We must obey God rather than men.
We should think, I'm doing it for God; I'm doing this job as if I'm doing it for the Lord. If I'm doing my work for the Lord, and not just for the boss, then I'll do it with excellence. That means I will do the best I can because I'm not doing it for anyone's approval except God's. I do my work with enthusiasm. I work for God; therefore, I do it with a cheerful attitude. "Never be lazy, but work hard and serve the Lord enthusiastically." (Romans 12:11) When you work with all your heart, motivated by the love of Christ, your work will be transformed into an act of worship for God.
Remember you can't please everyone but there is 1 person that you need to please and that is God. He is the only 1 that matters in this world. So whatever you do, do it to the best of your knowledge to please the Lord.
God I want to say there is no one I would rather please more then you. I love you with all my heart, body and soul. I know I'm not perfect I'm a work in progress but I know you love me and have patience with me. Please now be with my facebook family and friends and know that I love you. I ask these things in Jesus Name Amen.
